Distributional pattern of benthic foraminiferal morpho-groups in the shelf region off Mangalore: Environmental implications
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1995)
The foraminiferal population in 45 surface sediment samples (20-86 m water depth) off Mangalore, Karnataka, India, was divided into benthic and planktonic assemblages. Within the benthic community based on the external ...
Can benthic foraminiferal morpho-groups be used as indicators of paleomonsoonal precipitation?
(Academic Press, 1992)
A technique is proposed for the quick and easy assessment of paleomonsoonal precipitation through the study of morphological groups of foraminifera in a shallow water (20 m water depth) sediment core collected off Karwar, ...
Geoscientific investigations of the seabed for paleoclimatic inferences: Thrust area for priority research in the nineties
(Geological Society Of India, 1990)
Planktonic percentage of foraminiferal fauna in surface sediments of the Arabian sea (Indian Ocean) and a regional model for paleodepth determination
The percentage of planktonic specimens in foraminiferal assemblages were determined in 126 surface sediment samples (depth range 13 to 1050 m) from the Arabian Sea along the western continental margin of India. The results ...
Remunerative role of foraminifera in coastal ecosystem
(M.S. Swaminathan Research Foundation, Madras, India, 1994)
Due to the direct relationship between climate and economy (through agriculture), predictive models for climatic changes are very much needed. Climatic prediction is a delicate task and depends upon how well know the past ...
Growing need to study foraminifera in the laboratory culture experiments: An attempt from the central west coast of India
(K.D. Malaviya Institute of Petroleum Exploration, Dehra Dun (India), 1996)
In recent past much emphasis has been laid on the high resolution reconstruction of the paleoclimatic conditions to help in preparing the futuristic climatic model. Many such efforts have used foraminifera as proxy indicators ...
Study of sub-surface sediments from northern Indian Ocean: Oceanic responses to climatic changes
(Palaeontol. Soc. India, 1994)
The mean diameter and variation in isotopic composition (delta sup(18)) in thest of Orbulina universa d'Orbigny have been measured in a sediment core collected from 3869 m water depth near the Carlsberg Ridge, northern ...
Signals of the change in monsoonal precipitation at around 2,000 years BP in a sediment core off central west coast of India
(Current Science Association, 1994)
A 4.80 m long shallow water sediment core, collected from the inner shelf (at 22 m water depth) off Karwar near Kali River mouth is studied for foraminiferal tracers of palaeomonsoons. The climatic history of this core ...
Palaeoclimatic implications of size variation in Orbulina universa in a core from the North Indian Ocean
